printer-driver-hpcups is a dependency of hplip, so I would have expected 
it to be already installed.

This is strange.  libsnmp15 was in wheezy and a dependency of hplip 3.12.  
In Jessie, hplip is 3.14 and depends on libsnmp30.  You seem to have 
hplip 3.14, so why it's looking for the file above is a mystery.

Maybe try purging and re-installing hplip?
